    I am thinking about doing some construction to my coop. currently I am going into the run and reaching my arm into the doors of the coop to clean it out. im thinking about making one big section of wood cut out to cover the front that is on hinges so I can open it and have access to the entire inside of the coop. any ideas or advice. will post pictures soon.

    Cut a large hole and insert a frame covered in hardware cloth that is hinged down or to the side and securely latches (coon proof). If winter is a issue you can make a second that is solid (from the wood you cut out and swap them when the seasons change)
